at mitt romney's foreign policy speech yesterday and the role that issue is playing in the presidential election from today's "washington journal.". >> host: editor-in-chief at foreign policy. thanks for coming in this morning. >> guest: thanks for having me. >> host: mitt romney made his foreign policy speech yesterday. did you hear anything new? >> guest: this was an important speech for mitt romney. i think the third important foreign policy speech he made of the campaign. people are paying a lot more attention now that we're in days and weeks of the election. so i think it was an important moment for him. really what he is trying to do is what challengers are always trying to do when it comes to foreign policy. he is not outlining how he would run the country, how he would project american power in the world so much as continuing to draw contrasts with barack obama. i'm reminded of that old line. campaigns are all about accentuating small differences and emphasizing the heck out of them. i think that is little bit what we saw yesterday. . . and of course there's the classic republic

: with that mitt romney took aim at foreign policy today in a speech at virginia military institute in lexington, virginia. >> when we look at the middle east today, with iran closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability with the conflict in syria threatening to destabilize the region and with violent extremists on the march and with an american ambassador and three others dead likely at the hands of al qaeda affiliates it's clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. >> woodruff: that last point involved the assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi libya and the death of ambassador chris stevens on the night of september 11. the administration initially blamed an anti-muslim film for inciting the trouble. more recently officials have said new information indicates it was a terrorist attack. today romney again criticized the president's response in libya. >> i want to be very clear. the blame for the murder of our people in libya and the attacks on our embassies in so many other countries lie solely with those who carry them out. no one els

as declared by iranian agents to assassinate our -- >> we're talking about mitt romney's big foreign policy speech. i want to bring in holla to talk about it. one thing is this idea of avoid aing nuclear iran. from what i can tell and from what a lot of people say, it looks like the sanctions aren't working and it looks like diplomatic efforts aren't working either. how are people respond sng. >> well, it's just really a question of making a difference between what mitt romney is proposing, the approach toward iran versus barack obama, the tightening of sanctions. when you say there hasn't been an impact, perhaps not in terms of the development of nuclear capability or nuclear energy or nuclear products, but you did see that currency crisis over the last few weeks in iran that experts say was a result of that economic squeeze applied on the country because of these sanctions. this is a big problem for the leadership on the executive level in iran, but also as far as the clerical leadership is concerned. they have to address the frustrations of their citizens, who seem to value their currenc

on ohio in a big way. andrea mitchell, before we get to mitt romney's foreign policy speech yesterday which we want to focus on, are you surprised at all by the changes in these numbers? >> not all that surprised. i am surprised by the extent of the change in the women's numbers in michigan. >> i am. >> but i talked to a congresswoman in colorado, the morning after and she as a strong obama supporter was really disappointed that he had not raised women's issues in that debate. to say what you pointed out earlier, mika, he did not project the kind of likability to any of the audience, including women, of course. so she was disappointed. i asked what she thought had happened and she said, well, i don't know, he didn't ask me for advice. so a lot of his supporters, including strong women, members of congress were not at all happy about not going after what they perceived to be mitt romney's vulnerabilities. >> right. >> and it seems as though the trend is going in mitt romney's direction as joe just said. and how ironic is it that the only way to break that momentum right now, the fastes

the election. and mitt romney is campaigning hard after telling the world what his foreign policy will look like if he wins the white house. >> but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies when our words are not backed up by deeds. >> pundits are already buzzing about the upcoming foreign policy debate, but we want to look at how the rest of the world is reacting to this election. and our focus is on two hot spots, syria and libya. >> mitt romney tried to portray himself as a more forceful commander in chief. most thoetbly trying to draw a distinction from the obama administration over their approach to syria. he was clear he would be sure that syrian rebels got the weapons they need, the heavy weaponry they so desperately need to take on the gun ships an tanks causing civilian casualties. he portrayed the struggle as more about checking iran's influence in that region, but he also pointed out one of the major contradictions the white house is currently facing, the violence extremists are flowing in, but the need to vet the kind of assistance it would go t

and the power america goes when it needs to negotiate with this area. but -- >> last week mitt romney put in a strong performance in the first of the tv presidential debates but with the election less than a month away, the republican candidate still needs every advantage to overtake president obama. foreign policy has been seen as a weakness. but he's now trying to turn it into a have -- into a strength. >> mitt romney is looking to close the gap between he and barack obama. he criticized the government for failing to lead during a time of upheaval. >> i know the president hopes for a freer middle east. aligned with us. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our friends in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. last months attacks on the american consulates added they were likely the work of the same forces that attacked america on september 11, 11 years ago. >> with iran closer than ever to nuclear capability. >> the republican candidate said it was time to change course and said that he would put iran on notice and wor

'm guessing somebody like governor romney would step in and say the foreign policy needs more of a healthy dose of international economic involvement or the way of trade for example which i think president obama dropped the ball on the for most of his four years and therefore we need a structure that allows us to get there. as hard as that is to do and one would hope that given the smart analytical folks who might surround himself with those who are you still looking at complex corporate organizations that would make recommendations would during the bureaucracy into the 21st century on things as important as international decision making just to name one there are many others. but i would be my sense of it. >> that would be good and he would serve a great service to the country. once again to waste his first four years. you have the bureaucracy yourself that you have to deal with plus authorization when we search for changing the pieces around the table we have to get congressional approval and for example like right now they are trying to move noah. there is a wet noah and try noah come s

of entitlements sort of that was in the wake of paul ryan's vp selection. and the, you know, the foreign policy, there was a spike when romney went abroad. so you never know what's in the mind of another person, but i believe a.j. invited us here as the data wonks. and our job is to keep everyone here on the panel honest, so -- >> thank you, michael. very interesting. you know, as our panel is to make their presentation now, they're leaving two items, at least two items that i thought would be interesting to address. one is the very interesting article and now it is a book out by sasha isenberg about the fact that the press can't keep up with the political consultants and social networking experts, and reporters, basically, are way behind the curve in this campaign. and i think that's an interesting topic to take a look at. as well as the fact that in a way the reporters, my impression is having covered many presidential campaigns, it looks like both candidates have succeeded for the most part in talking over the press, especially the traveling press, and making them almost irrelevant to the ca

or the series of debates all three debates prompted them to take a second look. >> woodruff: in foreign policy in the last few days we're hearing a lot more from the rom camp about mistakes they say the president made when it came to the attack in libya. mitt romney has an op-ed in the wall street journal. is this likely to make a difference? this first debate is supposed to be about domestic issues. >> the white house is open to criticism that they mischaracterized the nature of the benghazi attack initially, tried to downplay it, said it wasn't terrorism but a mob action. i don't think this is the kind of issue that moves voters at a time when unemployment is 8.1% when the foreclosures are still a huge problem. it's an opening but not a game-changing kind of opening. >> i agree but if you're the romney campaign you look for any opportunity to put the president on the defensive and raise questions about him as a leader. that's what i think they're tryinged to do. >> woodruff: all right. well, we are delighted to have both of you back with us this monday night. stu rothenberg, susan page, than

taxes. mitt romney is showing time and time again that he's going to be the president of the whole country and his plan really speaks to that both on economy, foreign policy and other points about so that there is no question this debate is important, but also you are right, there's a long time left. there's two jobs reports that are left. about 33, 34 days that are left in this campaign. it's a long time. but what you saw going into this debate are polls tightening in florida, in ohio, all across the board in the battleground states. and this will build on that momentum. and when the jobs report comes out, there will not be a positive jobs report by all expectations from president obama that will again build on that momentum and add to mitt romney really getting toward november 6th with full steam ahead. but there are two debates left. it's important for mitt romney not to have a let down in the next debate which is more of a town hall structure. and that bodes well for president obama. but if mitt romney can keep going with the strength that he did in the first debate, it will be

would like also to do a lot of the school choice things that romney is talking about, but has been hampered from doing any of it. >> tonight, they will not go into the foreign policy stuff. the one part where obama is weak is this flip-flopping, if you will, on the libya stuff. that's the weakness, the nugget, if you will, the window opening. they won't go into that tonight, or they shouldn't go into it. >> thank you, guys, for the pregame. appreciate it. quick programming note. cnbc's coverage of the first presidential debate begins tonight at 7:00 p.m. eastern time. >> if you've got your reaction shots ready? we have a different director today. >> yeah. >> god forbid -- let me just try. surprised. >> just be ready. because it's coming. >> i need to know. it's a long morning. >> he's thrown in with us trying to follow our conversation around the table. but be careful. >> almost got me. i was doing that. >> oh, you were? >> yeah. >> i'm listening to you intently. >> thank you. i appreciate it. >> don't take me when i'm listening to andrew seriously. anyway. did you get that? i figu
